Our July 4th

I am finally getting around to posting our pictures from the 4th of July. I know it was 2 1/2 wks ago, but better late then never....I guess.

We had a great day! First we went to a parade........

Everyone hanging out chillin, waiting for the parade to start.

The girls got their face painted.

The parade finally started...........

I think Lilee thought she was part of the parade.... Maybe little Miss 4th of July or

Josiah enjoying a treat. Usually we NEED something cold to cool us off, but this was the first 4th of July I can ever remember that was the perfect temperature. It even got cool enough at night that I needed a jacket to watch the fire works. That's a first!!! Usually it is sooooooo hot you can hardly stand it.

The kids collecting their loot............

Joel showing me everything they got......... Candy, toys, necklaces......

Then we were invited to a cook out at Aunt Glenda and Uncle Mike's house...... They set the slip and slide up for the kids. They have well water so the water was really cold, cold enough Jordan didn't want to participate. It didn't stop the other kids though.......

Josiah getting ready to launch off........

Don't ya just love the faces they are making?

Joel's turn........... He tried it a few different ways........

Jordan gives Sara Ava a boost so she could make it to the end. She is holding her .... she is such a girl! ;0)

Josiah waiting on her at the pool.

Lilee was not a fan......... first of all it was too cold for her, plus she hurt herself the 2 times she tried it. Josiah ended up taking her down a few times so she would not get hurt....... She still did not like it! ( as you can tell from her face in the next 2 pictures.)

Joel found a little tiny tree frog.

Josiah made a fire.....I think they were going to roast marsh mellows but never got around to it. He just enjoyed building the fire!

Then we waited for the sun to go down................

to watch fire works from their front yard. We could see Waxhaw's show perfectly! We also set a few of our own off.

What a fun day!

I'm glad you all had a great 4th of
July. We did, too. The weather was
perfect, temperature and all. I wish
it was that cool now. But, I'd better not complain. The cold will
be here all too soon.
Love the pictures of the kids and
their expressions, too.
Love ya bunches,
Mom (Nana)
